Foundation Day

Our brand new Foundation Day is ideal for women who may want to think about going into public life, but aren't yet ready for our residential Aspiring Candidates' course.

Because we want to make sure every woman can benefit from our training, we have developed our Foundation Day to cover all the basics and provide an excellent grounding for women at all stages of political development.

Delivered to the same gold-standard as our Parliamentary training, the Foundation Day will cover;

  • policy-making and party structures;
  • selection procedures and how they work;
  • political life planning and development.


Places on each day are limited and all our volunteer trainers are knowledgeable and experienced.

To apply, you need to have been a member of the Labour Party for at least one year (although this is waivable at LWN 's discretion), and be or become a member of LWN. You can find out more about us here, or go straight to the joining page here.

This course is heavily subsidised by LWN members, which means that we are able to keep the fee down to just £20.  This needs to be paid at least 48 hours before the day of the course.  

Foundation Days will run from 9.30am to 5pm, and are planned for the following locations in the first half of 2017:  

21st January 2017 in Birmingham City Centre;
25th March 2017 in London;
1st July 2017 in Manchester.

Please note that all our training courses are over subscribed, so a completed application form does not guarantee a place.
